    Summary

    Unwillingly forced to serve as a human trial for a crazy alchemist experimenting with time travel, Edward Elric finds himself standing across from Truth in the moment it takes his leg from him. Armed with the knowledge of what's to come and burdened with guilt for the choices he'd made as an adult, Ed sets out to fix every mistake he ever made and save every life they ever lost, no matter what it takes.

    It had a good premise and setup about visiting Xing first, but the story ended up focusing too much on Edward’s romance and too little on the plot for my taste. The story described a whole bunch of planning, but the actual execution was pretty anticlimactic. The main characters were never challenged by the villains.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I quite liked the first story. I read the first 1.5 chapters of the second story, and it looks fun as well. However, I don’t want to read too much of this without being assured it has some sort of ending.

    I’ll check back on this series later (relative to 2021-05) and hope to see some more completed stories in it. If there are none, I may read this anyway for some fun and heartwarming interactions, if I can stand whatever plot about ninja fights or character development not being resolved.

    I especially liked the detailed inner thoughts of various characters in the last chapter, the exploration of Kakashi’s fear of attachment, and the fleshing out of how civilians live in the military dictorship that is Konoha.

    It’s too bad the plot of Naruto and Sasuke growing doesn’t resolve, exactly, in this first book – this book focuses on the romance. But thanks to Inoichi’s very in-character foreshadowing, the romance ends with enough finality that I don’t feel too disappointed by the end.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A pleasant adventure the whole way through. Some action scenes (I’m thinking of chapters 75 and 82 in particular) had surprisingly few details and were over surprisingly quickly, but the deep character explorations in the rest of the story made up for it. Everyone was portrayed realistically and no one was given the Idiot Ball with regards to time travel. The world was fleshed out in subtle ways such as Tonks’ favorite club and the painting-editing technique. The main characters Remus, Sirius, and Tonks were very much original flavor, but this story shows some ramifications of their personalities that canon didn’t have the space to explore.

    I didn’t mind the choice to continue the story after Voldemort’s defeat and appreciated the chance to explore a little-known situation in this fandom: post-war peace.

    I didn’t like that Remus’s first year passed so quickly with nothing important happening. In that year, why wouldn’t he have time to get into adventures, or research how to defeat Voldemort, or start feeling depressed that he left his old time behind? But that problem only affected chapter 3, not the other 99 chapters.

    An interesting premise (based on this prompt), and a surprising but plausible twist. My only gripes are that the Sorting Hat’s motivations aren’t as clear as I’d wish, and the last sentence is grammatically incorrect.

    A fun time travel story that is mostly humorous but also has a good amount of serious parts (and Sirius parts). It skips ahead through a lot of events, but it’s still interesting enough.

    It’s not complete yet, though… I hope it gets finished. I will reevaluate the “semifavorite” tag when I reread this after it is complete.

    Some cute fluff with a little bit of emotional drama beforehand. I was hoping for a little more significance to the final decision, such as Shinichi and Sonoko having to work together at a crime scene or them having a talk after Shinichi is cured, but the aftermath that is described has some weight to it, at least.

    A good exploration of Harry and Draco’s possible childhoods and adulthoods, and how they might have felt, both when growing up as they did and if they had had a loving adult there to take care of them. I liked the side character of Andromeda, too, and the hints at depth in the characters of Petunia and Dudley.

    I do wish the crime-solving plot was explored a little deeper, so that we could see the criminals get their comeuppance and Harry’s work life get better, but this is still a good story despite that omission.

    A bodyswap subversion and bromance, this story features a Ron Weasley convinced they are mates, a Hermione keen on the Dark Arts, a surprisingly friendly Blaise Zabini, and a Luna Lovegood who's just mad enough to find this all perfectly ordinary.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story had interesting new plots that make the characters do things I’ve never seen in a fanfiction, while still being in character. The trope subversions and discussions of that in the author’s notes were interesting. And I enjoyed some of the worldbuilding such as Ron’s exploration of how Accio works and Hogwarts’s personality.

    Though most of the story was fun and intriguing, I felt let down by the climax (chapters 23 to 25). I’m still confused by why Hermione made the plan she did, and why she and Draco changed their plans after the particular events that happened. One author’s note said was something to do with characters’ conflicting time travel loops, but I just don’t get how they are supposed to lead to that.

    Now that I think about it, I had the same problem with the ending of one of the author’s earlier stories, Happily Married. When reading that story, I didn’t understand why the final timeline was different, but I didn’t mind as much because time/dimension travel wasn’t really the focus of that story. I wonder whether the author’s problem is just failing to communicate the sensical endings they thought of, or actually thinking through their time travel scenario so they make sense.

    I also am not convinced that Chapter 17’s Defense exam would actually revealed about the Horcrux what Ron said it did in the last chapter. Therefore, that Horcrux is an resolved plot point for me, though it’s not as big a problem as my confusion around the climax.

    This story shows a good reason that Riddle would choose to go into Gryffindor, one that I never thought about. There’s not much plot in it, though. Even having read the previous story in this series, the development at the end doesn’t seem to lead to an obviously better or worse situation, so it doesn’t resolve anything.

    It’s not a story, and not very entertaining… but as an essay for helping readers and writers better understand the character of Bellatrix Lestrange (née Bellatrix Black) better, it is quite useful. I haven’t finished reading this yet, but it is well on its way to convincing me that Bellatrix isn’t the blindly-devoted, cackling madwoman I thought she was.

    2. Once, over the course of two memorable weeks, an escaped Chizpurfle wreaked havoc inside the castle.

    “A what?” Ron whispered, when it was announced at dinner.

    “A Chizpurfle,” Hermione hissed back. “Newt Scamander wrote about them in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. They’re small crab-like parasites that feed off larger creatures like Augureys and Crups, but they’re also attracted to leftover potions and objects with high magical concentrations.”

    “My mam told me about them,” Seamus Finnigan said darkly. “She said once when I was little, we had a Chizpurfle infestation in our house. Turns out they were after her wand and some of the rare spellbooks she kept in the attic.”

    “They eat wands?” Harry asked, horrified.

    “Yeah. Mam told the neighbors it was rats. Had to live with my uncle Angus for three weeks, while the Ministry pest control cleaned ‘em all out.”
